Peter Kalaya, spokesman for the Northern Region Police, told the Maravi Post that preliminary police investigations reveal that Fay left the compound around 8 p.m. Wednesday to escort its manager who lives in the area on foot.
Kalaya said that after realizing her husband was taking time off, the deceased’s wife, Tina Kamanga and other station workers formed a search party and started looking for him.
The deceased was found in the early hours of Thursday thrown into the bush a few yards from the road with deep cuts to his head and face.
“The attackers also left with his two mobile phones. Fay’s body has since been taken to Mzuzu Central Hospital where an autopsy is expected to be performed,” Kalaya says.
The police are therefore advising people to refrain from walking alone especially at night and are asking those who may have information leading to the arrest of the thugs to come forward.
